First, let me say, congratulations to Danny Willett 2016 Masters Winner!

You have to have your game with every single par. You have to stay committed behind the bunker.” Jordan Spieth after the 2016 Masters

 The second English winner after Nick Faldo. What an exciting finishing we all got to enjoy! Danny Willett is the proud new Daddy of a brand new two-week old son, Zachariah James Willett, and I know so many in England are celebrating this momentous win!!!

Last year at this time, we were celebrating the 2015 Masters Winner, Jordan Spieth and I wrote this blog post about Jordan and his sister.

Jordan finished 3 strokes behind Willett. “I think the whole golfing world feels for Jordan Spieth,” Jack Nicklaus shared after the unexpected finish. “My heart goes out to him for what happened, but I know that Jordan is a young man who will certainly learn from this experience and there will be some good that comes out of this for him. He’s a wonderful talent and a wonderful young man,” Nicklaus said.

Jordan Spieth, gives it his all losing by only 3 strokes.

Spieth spoke of what happened on No. 12, “Just compounded mistakes, just a lack of discipline to hit it over that bunker coming off of two bogeys, instead of recognizing that I’m still leading the Masters by a couple of shots. It’s very, very tough. It was a very tough 30 minutes that I hope does not happen again.

The object pf golf is to just to win. It is to play like a gentleman, and win. Phil Mickelson

I hope you had a chance to watch some or all of this amazing golf tournament held every spring in our home state of Georgia, U. S. A.

  1. My heart went out the this amazing young man! It was hard to watch that No 12 hole… His grace and honesty will never be forgotten! I have been following him since his rookie year at the Masters. I love the love he has for his family – especially his little sister and his long time girlfriend. He is young and will come out of this stonger than ever. If I had a son, I would want him to have the same character as Jordan Spieth! Great blog Joan!

  2. Hi Claudia, I so appreciate you taking a minute to leave your thoughts. I agree, his character is certainly one to be emulated! He’s so grounded, a super great role model!
    Blessings to you & your family!
